know, when did he know it, and did he go to bed while leon panetta was up all night? that just seems so extraneous. it's just using chuck hagel as hostage for the lerchlg because wasn't even around during benghazi. >> it certainly seems -- andrea, i guess i'm skeptical of the idea that in the week's time they really need time to review what chuck hagel has said in the past, his speeches. he know chuck hagel has said controversial things about iran and we know he has said controversial things about homo sexuality that he has since apologized for. this delay seems to me maybe i'm being too cynical and political that that's kind of my thing, but this delay seems to be about the opponents of chuck hagel who do not think he is suited to be secretary of defense want one more week to see if there is anything that comes out that can be disqualifying for him. if there isn't -- if you are hagel, you never want to be twisting in the wind for another week while you kind of sit silently and europe independents do everything they can to kind of find something disqualifying? >> susan rice, the nominee

. >> senator, leon panetta said in testimony this past week that he had one telephone call with the president, chairman dempsey was on the line, the call was 30 minutes long during the event in benghazi. do you think that was a level of involvement that was appropriate for the president? were you surprised that was the only phone call? >> secretary panetta indicated that there were actions that he would have taken with the benefit of hindsight that perhaps would have been different but he also said the major gap was in effect an intelligent gap, knowing what was happening on the ground. we'll need to revisit the procedures that we used. all actions taken in light of the need for greater intelligence which he identified as the major, in effect, gap during that time. >> of course coming up on tuesday, the president's annual stay of the union address, focusing on jobs and the economy. do you believe he'll pay the appropriate amount of attention to the issue that's preimminent on the concerns americans's are facing? >> he'll make jobs and the economy the centerpiece of the state of union and the

the white house and from the administration, and when you look back at panetta's last week in the hearing when he said he called the president at 5:00 and didn't touch base with him again. it's a fallout from the president being too focused on the election, not taking care of the embassador and our folks out there in benghazi that unfortunately had to die because of this. >> chris, do you think it's the president's fault, that he was too focused on the election and didn't do anything else that night? >> you know, i think it's easy to be -- it's a cheap shot. the reality is and the administration has been clear, mistakes were made. secretary -- former secretary of state clinton testified multiple times, she talked about what happened. there was -- she took responsibility for this terrible event. there was an investigation independent in terms of what happened and how to prevent it from happening. it seems strange at this moment that senator graham is decide to go put a hold on this. to be honest, my opinion, it has more to do with the fact there's a serious division between former senator
a deferment. >> and chuck hagel, if he's confirmed will attend a nato conference. and if not, panetta will have to step in there. >> and that's the pressure that's going to have to come to bear for the republicans, at the end of the day, this has real impact if the president doesn't have a confirmed secretary of defense. >> some of the republicans have tried to, i don't know if it's splitting hairs or if they're embarrassed by the use of the word filibuster, but they're attempting to describe this as something other than that. >> this is not a filibuster, i keep getting stopped by people out in the hall, oh, we're going to filibuster, who's going to filibuster. it's not a filibuster, all they have to do is have a 60-vote margin. >> so rachel, harry reed says it is a filibuster, jim inhoff says it is not. >> and that reflects the complicated politics going on right here. this is a troubled nomination for the white house, it has been from the start. there's no natural support out there for chuck hagel, he's a republican, but a lot of republicans feel he's a republican in name only. they
leon panetta and general martin dempsey chair of the joint chiefs said they made that recommendation to president obama. panetta told a senate hearing that, in the end, the president decided against sending in arms. instead, the u.s. has provided only humanitarian aid to the rebels. secretary panetta also defended the military's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the assault killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. panetta testified there'd been no specific warning of an imminent attack, so u.s. forces were too far away to respond. >> the united states military, as i've said, is not and frankly should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world. the u.s. military has neither the resources nor the responsibility to have a firehouse next to every u.s. facility in the world. >> sreenivasan: republican senator john mccain of arizona argued the military could have deployed in time, if it had heeded warnings coming from the consulate and ambassador stevens. a 21-year-old
